That is simple. TilingWMs aim for efficiency. You know what else is efficient, terminal. That is why tilingWM users make heavy use of terminal. And woila, every riced tilingWM looks the same.
That is not a bad thing though. Every windows installation looks the same and people still get job done.
As an ex-i3wm user I say that "To much ricing and not much working is a serious condition". I don't hate tilingWMs. I don't think they aren't for everyone.
@distrotube I think one of the biggest problems of tiling wms is that you need some kind of backup of you configuration, so you never have to start from zero again. Otherwise the time investment to keep it up and running as workstation (browsing, working, streaming, gaming) is just too high for most users.
